[Mod component] The Dll Extender

Postby AUTOMATIC » Mon Mar 26, 2018 5:08 pm

This is a major extension to scripting system, providing new APIs to mod developers.

Additionally, it installs a "mod content" button into main menu, which by default has two actions available: editing squads (which lets you enable/disable squads from mods using a nice UI) and rearranging pilots (so that you're able to select pilots from mods in the new game screen).

DOWNLOADS

INSTALLATION

2. Extract the dll extender archive into game directory, overwriting a total of 6 files, including SDL2.dll, lua5.1.dll, scripts/scripts.lua and thre files inside scripts/mod_loader directory.

The mod loader now implements this api, if you have the latest version there is no need to download it separately.

Great work on the extender for Into the Breach. One thing I noticed while using it, however, is that it makes the volume scrollers unusable for some reason, preventing you from unselecting once you click them. Other than that though, it works great. Thanks for the mod.
